Arsenal want to sign Premier League left-back

Arsenal to sign Patrick van Aanholt?

Arsenal are reportedly interested in landing the signature of Patrick van Aanholt from Crystal Palace before the transfer deadline.



The Gunners recently sent Sead Kolasinac to Schalke 04 on loan and they are now on the hunt for a new left-back.

Cedric Soares, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka are capable of offering back-up to Kieran Tierney, but Mikel Arteta wants a specialist.

They were recently linked with a move for Tyrick Mitchell, but Palace have made it clear that the youngster is not for sale.

Hence, the club are now looking to sign Van Aanholt, who has played second fiddle to the youngster in recent weeks.

Van Aanholt's current deal with the Eagles expires at the end of the season and the south London side may be tempted to sell him.

Van Aanholt, who was previously with Sunderland, has vast Premier League experience with more than 200 appearances to his name.

The Gunners have also been linked with Southampton's Ryan Bertrand, but the Saints appear in no mood to sell him.
